I have this problem on XP SP3 too - tried both 12.4 and 13.4 HP drivers as well as Intel 14.2 driver and result is same - drops, slow (varying during connection) speed, not able to connect sometimes
all this while there was no problem on Vista. Intel link 5100agn, newest bios F1.A

maybe the problem can be solved by means of a new router. I have a D-Link 615 router. This device is really great and I never encounter connectivity problems between this device and my Elitebook 8540p or smartphones of various brands or non HP laptops. It always works.
A few months ago, I received a wireless router (some stupid Chinese device) from my internet provider. I tried it. A complete disaster. The connection goes down too often in a regular internet session. When the laptop resumes from sleep mode or hibernation the connection remains dead. I have to switch off the router and switch it on again. Also connectivity problems between this device and smartphones ("Gateway does not react").
I do not have a solution for you at this moment, but at least i scetched a direction that might be more appropriate than changing drivers etc.

etienne thanks for advice but this is not the case this time, situation is similar on two completely different routers
contacted HP support, they sent links with drivers, default system setting etc. all that applied (some other HP wifi driver there - v 14.2) nothing changes, currently my connection speed still jumps and drops- connection dialog showing like down to 1mbit/s and the actual speed of browsing/downloading is even much slower,
